Dominik Mysterio is looking to carry on the Rey Mysterio name.
In the past, Rey Mysterio has spoken about how his son, Dominik, has to earn his name and mask, the same way he did from his uncle, Rey Misterio Sr. Appearing on the latest episode of Out of Character with Ryan Satin, Dominik confirmed that to be the end goal and says that even though culturally the name belongs to him, he is willing to do whatever his dad wants because he's the one that made it what it is. Here are his full remarks on the matter:
"Most definitely. I think the long goal here, the end game is to eventually take over the Rey Mysterio name. That's the legacy within it. He's Rey Mysterio. It’s only right to make a junior. Traditional and Lucha culture and Hispanic culture that's tradition, that's what you do. I kind of just showed up and Dom Mysterio just organically happened. Everything happened so fast that we didn't really get a chance to kind of, you know, put these little things together, but we've definitely talked about it. He's mentioned before the mask is something that I have to earn, along with the name, so you know if one day he wants to pass it on to me after he retires or if he wants to make me earn it after he retires or something, whatever it is, I'm up for it. I just know that that name belongs to me. It's only right, you know, Hispanically, culturally, it's only right. But, you know, whatever he wants. At the end of the day because he's the one that's made it what it is, so I'll respect his decision, whatever it is."
Dominik made his in-ring debut for WWE at SummerSlam 2020 in a match against Seth Rollins. In the past year, he has been a staple on SmackDown and has even carried the Tag Team Titles alongside his father.
This past week, both he and Rey were selected by Raw in the 2021 WWE Draft. They can be seen on Monday nights when the new rosters take effect following the Crown Jewel event on October 21st.
